Thanks again all of you.
Now that it is in the mail, I intend to gather all pertinent information regarding its installation.....Already I have hit a snag.
For now, pending site-administrator approval, I have signed up with e4allupgraders
forums....Posting on this site as well as the other, I hope to find the answers I need.
I have no problem, extracting the old, and physically installing the new CPU.....It's my BIOS I'm worried about..... I have been in and out of every option. Staring, for what seemed like years, at that horrid yellow-on-blue screen.....and to no avail was there an option to set manually, or automatically the power requirements of the new CPU.
I was hoping someone could help me identify what I need to do with my BIOS to accommodate this new processor.
My MB and specifications are at the top of this thread...in addition to that information:
BIOS - Phoenix Technologies, LTD
Version - 6.00 PG
Date - 01/31/2008
Have I missed a jumper on the MB? Or had I gone cross-eyed feeling the effects of staring into the soul of my BIOS?.....
If there is anyone familiar with my situation, I am kindly asking for your help.
If I have failed to pass on information that may help you help me, please let me know, and I will post it here when I gather it!
Thanks again to everyone.
